‘Yummy’ Vegan Chipotle Chicken Nuggets are now on sale at the chain’s stores
NEW YORK — Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc. said it has started selling its first vegan chicken snack, and the company said the new products are already being sold in a handful of Chipotle restaurants.
The company said on Wednesday that customers can now buy the chicken snacks at its locations and online.
The products are made with whole, organic chicken.
The company said it was the first vegan snack to be sold at Chipotle’s U.S. locations since the company began selling chicken nuggets last year.
The chicken nugget is made with chicken, ground chicken, corn, soybean meal and other ingredients.
Chipotle said the products have been sold in some Chipotle locations for at least the past month.
The new products were originally launched in January and feature corn tortillas, roasted green peppers, avocado and chilies.
Chipotle said it sold more than 2.5 million chicken nugs last year, making it the most popular non-meat snack in the chain.
